The Nancy Smillie Shop

Cresswell Lane, G12

Delightful home accessories and furniture. There is a great display of lamps, china and ceramics. The Boabab Ceramics with their beautiful and unusually contrasting colours are wonderful and you will love the beaded boudoir lamps and the very simple, but striking, bedside lamps. There is lots of high class novelties and attractive trinkets which can translate into wonderful presents or quirky little gifts and wonderful furniture.

Glasgow Artist Allan Richardson – Local City Scenes


summer in glasgowAllan Richardson is  much loved and well known local artist, who  can often be seen working on his latest project in the streets of Glasgow. He always takes the time to stop and answer any questions people may have about his work – and usually he has a good story to tell  about the buildings he is capturing on canvas.

Best In The West BusinessAllan is such a popular Glasgow character  that he is featured in Alasdair Gray’s mural in Hillhead Underground, where he is depicted in his other role – keeping the streets of the West End sparkling clean. 

A self taught artist, Allan captures some of Glasgow’s most iconic buildings in his own unique style which makes us all yearn to be there. His  art is particularly popular with Glasgow ex-pats and is a great way for them to have their own bit of Glasgow in their home.
